Washington, D.C. — Franklin Foer, Editor of The New Republic, announced today that Brian Beutler will join the company's editorial team as a Senior Editor in April. At The New Republic, Beutler will write daily about U.S. politics and policy, with a focus on Congress, the White House, elections, and political movements.

Beutler, who joins The New Republic from Salon.com, says, "I share The New Republic's commitment to writing honestly and critically about policy and movement politics. I'm honored to follow in the footsteps of myriad talented political writers who have called The New Republic their home."
